SENCO Teacher in London, United Kingdom

I love traveling and writing.

I started traveling when I was just 18 years old and soon caught the bug! My very first journey was to South Africa, which is a very interesting story in itself. My story is part of a bigger story which you can read in a book called 'London Recruits, The Secret War Against Apartheid' which explains all about that incredible adventure! I urge you all to buy a copy, as all proceeds go to the Nelson Mandela Childrens' Fund.

A film is being made about the London Recruits. There's a Kickstarter Project where you can find details. it's all very exciting as it's so important that our story is told.

I have a wonderful family - a beautiful wife called Giovanna and a 15 year old son, who is a budding musician. Giovanna and I want to help make this world a better place and so we started our website called the Adventure Travel Shop.

Adventure travel companies are working very hard to change the face of the tourist industry. They fight against any type of exploitation be it the beautiful places we love to visit or the people who live in them. Many amazing places have been and overdeveloped, exploited and ruined!

Adventure travel companies, such as G Adventures and Intrepid Travel are working hard to help us find more responsible and sustainable ways of traveling and seeing the world.

Giovanna and i are also teachers, and we believe that education and travel are very closely linked - that's another reason why we promote responsible travel.

Thanks very much indeed for your time.
